    in Culture

    We Business Hippies, Professional musician Earl and Professional Painter Hannah Tiffin, have a lot to juggle in the course of a business day. We are just like any other couple except that we own two businesses together and are each others only employees!! We are always together....Always! We are also two very Alpha minded individuals with good business sense and lots of ideas. There are many situations we do not agree upon and there is a lot of navigation on a daily basis to succeed in business and more importantly to find success as a family. Oh! Did I mention that we also home school our 11 year old in the middle of running two businesses? 


    If you are someone who owns a BOP (business of passion) or Small Business with your mate this discussion is for you. We are going to cover things like agreeing to disagree, spending time together, intimacy and family, supporting one another when poor choices are made and so on. We really are one of the nation’s funniest families in our opinion and we truly have done everything wrong at least once! We have even fired each other a time or two! Disagreements are normal and tune in to learn how it can be healthy!

It really doesnt matter what type of business you own or what your personal goals in life may be, you will not likely get there with out a plan. This is going to be a informationally jam packed half hour where we will discuss how to start planning successes rather than overting challenges. Those of us who own a business of passion where we are our brands are most in need of having a strong plan. We can not stumble into success with out it. It really doesnt matter how great your art is, how cool your songs are, how great you do nails or cut hair or make cup cakes if the world recieving your service is not part of your active plan. How do we reach our audiences? How do we become  visible to our markets? How do we determine what market we should be projecting to? How much of our profit do we reinvest? How much does social media help? Should I pay some one to help? 


    There are so many questions when we start planning our success. Join us and learn how we are working daily to ensure the health of our businesses and our futures and learn some of our missteps too! This discussion is not just for those of you who are business owners, there is a lot of practical advise for everyday living in this segment as well.

    The Business Hippies Discussion on Burning Bridges! Sometimes you gotta.

    in Culture

    Join professional musician Earl and professional painter Hannah Tiffin in a discussion on Burning Bridges. Sometimes you have to and sometimes we are being hasty. Like Kenny Rodgers sang "You gotta know when to hold em, you gotta know when to fold em, know when to walk away, know when to run" 


    If you have a small business or a business of passion (BOP) you are going to find times where you will be questioning if it is time to burn a bridge or two. It happens to us all. Most of us are told from a young age that we should "never burn a bridge" or "you never know when you will need that person" well we disagree. Sometimes relationships are not what we thought they were going to be, they can be not good for us and our businessess can suffer from our inability to part ways with those who are not aligned with us, 


    This being said, there are ways to go about ending business relationships, there are ways of standing up for yourself and you are allowed to say no,. The key is to have perimiters in place to keep you from making irrational choices!


    Tune in for a frank discussion on burning bridges setting perimiters and moving forward!

    Business Hippies discuss having a business of passion. Success and Failure.

    in Culture

    Join professional musican Earl and professional artist Hannah in a frank discussion on having businesses of passion, navigating our successes and our failures.


    What is a business of passion? A buisness of passion typically refers to a business that is creative based. This thought could include artists of all kinds. Painters, Musicians, Photographers, Writers, Professional Bloggers, Beauticians, Coaches,Chefs, Healers and so on. But it also includes everyone who is an entrepreneur in our opinion. Passion is a vital ingrediant to being successful in any business. So is a plan of success. 


    We call ourselves "business hippies" which actually started as a joke in our home. Truth be told the term "hippie" was not one that either of us really thought of as defining or even desirable. But! Once we learned the value of aligning our internal core values with our work choices we ended up in a space where we were almost forced to rebuild our businesses to reflect what was important to us, which were very simple living, rooted values. Sooo the term "business hippie" became a title that we now love to hold! 


    Tune in and share with us your thoughts on having businesses of passion, discuss how you are planning your success to include corevalues such as love, joy, family time and so on. Hear some stories about our journey to alignment with our core values which brought us a ton of success and challanges and share with us how your journey is coming along. 


    First person to call in or chat in will win a prize this week!

    Business Hippies Discussion on Building and Holding Reputation

    in Culture

    Join professional musician Earl Tiffin and professional artist Hannah Tiffin in a discussion on building and maintaining the reputation of your business of passion or small business. This topic is going to be a tough one! Today there is so much more to think about when it comes to the reputation of our businesses than there ever was before! We have online reviews our customers can leave reviews on, we have websites and Facebook, there are blogs and tweets. There are tons of ways for customers to communicate that they are unhappy with our small businesses today and you would be lucky if you could find them all, not to mention make good on them.


    What is a small business owner to do? Should you go out and purchase reputation management software to let you know when someone is talking badly about your business? Should you be overly nice and give more than you can afford to win their smiles? NO!


    Reputation is really about what we as BOP (business of passion) owned do BEFORE we ever see our customer. We must set perimeters, allow ourselves the gift of saying no to things that will not be good for us, we must be committed to our successes enough to be present and dependable. We must have pride in our work and ensure that what we are presenting really does represent what we want our clients to see. And we must have pride and honesty in the messages we are sending to them!


    Join us for a discussion on Reputation where we will cover all the bases and even share some of our experiences in the past with reputation challenges!

    Is Social Media Killing Your Small Business?

    in Entrepreneur

    Is social media killing your BOP? Small business and medium businesses have grown to rely on social media to help them brand, "connect" and sell thier services. Some businesses pay to "boost" thier posts for a seemingly larger reach, increase thier fan bases and elevate the awareness of thier BOP. Most believe that though the stats are promising, they are not effective. Many businesses are awaking to a space of confusion, dissapointment and discouragement over things like lack of reach, connection and interactions with thier brands. Many people have seen a sharp decline in the amount of people who see thier posts. Many people have put so much time into social media that they are killing thier businesses. Social media is an illusion. Yes....it is "social" Yes, people (about 6%) will see your posts but even General Motors with 50,000 fans has realized that there is no more money and time to be wasted in trying to build the brand with face book. 


    We Business Hippies have awoken from this illusion as well. We are leaving face book in 2015 and we already have cut it down to no more than 20 minutes a day for our whole social media portfolio. We realized that we were killing our business through our reliance on facebook to carry our networking weight. The truth is, no one in your news feed really cares, they are not going to buy your products enough to sustain your business, They are likely to not even see your posts. "They" are not the problem. We are. So tonight we will chat about this honestly. Where we went wrong, how we have damaged our business and what we are going to do to thrive in this ADD nation. Join in the conversation!

    Going Off Road! (When to Scrap your Plan & Start a New One)

    in Entrepreneur

    We often advise our friends and clients to "stick to your guns. Don't give up!" But what about those other times? The awkward ones, where a specific project, plan, or venture has come up WAY short. Often, in these uncomfortable times, we get a moment of clarity. Sometimes, these aren't failures, at all, but a different road, waiting to be traveled. A means to a different end. Once in awhile, it is time to jerk the wheel and go off roading! Make a change. Cut and run. Reassess, cut your losses, scrap the plan, burn it down, walk away from the wreckage, and start over.


    How? When? What are the signs? ...It can be a little tricky knowing when the signs are on the wall. Should I stay, or should I go?
